Maintenance Notes: 

The flowers of Portulaca will close at night and reopen the next day.  They will tolerate dry soils, although they will perform optimally with average moisture.  These are tough plants that will tolerant poor soils and do not need a lot of fertilizer to perform well.  Deadheading is not needed.

This durable and colorful flowering succulent blooms all summer long in juicy shades of tangerine, pink, red, fuchsia, and yellow without deadheading. Choose which color suits your color palette when you buy. The vivid blooms are a welcome sight especially in high summer when they really come into their own. This plant is a great choice for warm climates and poor, drier soils.

  • I absolutely love this plant! The colors are amazing! I planted one last year and I knew I was going to plant more this year, these portulaca's you cannot go wrong with. Minimal upkeep, drought resistant and loves the HOT afternoon sun, and our summers here in Buffalo NY have been very very hot (I know hard to believe) this plant is thriving!! I love Proven Winners ~ Thank you!

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • I am in love with this plant! The fushia color is amazing! I grew the tangerine last year and fell in love with the plant. I was intending to purchase the same color this year until I saw fushia. I love how easy it is to grow this plant! I literally just popped it in my pot and water it every few days. It’s growing beautifully! I share pictures of it often on my social media’s! Proven Winners is my favorite for flowers! I wish more places around my area carried their plants!
